I'm not trying to just argue with you, this is just literally the first time I've ever heard anyone say that it would be more expensive to operate an electric car than a gasoline one, so I'm curious.
They're also using electric rates that are 1/3 of what the average US homeowner pays, so I figured it was a wash at best.
